So, you finally heard back from that job in Portland, did you? Now’s the right time to pack up your belongings and get a head start on that move, especially if you’re only a few weeks away from your moving date.

Time and time again, we notice that the biggest mistake people make when preparing to move is waiting until the last minute. It often takes fewer than three days for most families to pack up a home (five days at the latest) if you pack efficiently. 

Instead of scrambling at the eleventh hour to get all your things over to the new location, why not work with Priestley & Sons? We’re the best choice of moving companies in Gresham for many reasons. 

Allow us to share three qualities that help us stay at the top of the list–and why they’re important during your big move.

“Teresa, Thank you so very much for sending Robert, Kameron, Andrew and David to my home to move our large items last week. The professionalism shown by your crew was incredible! They made what could have been a very trying day into a pleasure. They were quick, effecient, and very nice to work with. Thanks again!”

-Debra and Jon, SE Portland, OR

“We had Priestly and Sons relocate my Mother into an assisted living apartment. Robert and Cameron arrived on time and checked in with facility staff on how to access the apartment and started the move. They worked quickly and efficiently with no impact to other elderly residents. After my Mothers furniture and belongings were relocated they loaded up the truck with the excess furniture and delivered it to a couple our relatives. It was a long day with a lot of milk run type stops to drop off this and that. The two guys were very courteous and pleasant for the entire day. Most all of our family uses Priestly for their moves and in our extended family there has never been a discouraging word about the Priestly company or employees. Job well done Robert and Cameron.”

-Doug J.

“I am so pleased and impressed with the move efforts & performance by the Priestley team, including the initial contact, the from-to move site visit, and the actual move itself. The movers - Robert, Zach, & Matt Z. were fantastic! They were curious, professional and committed to make the move go without a hitch. Everything was perfect and most importantly, there was no damages of any type. A great experience and I would highly recommend Priestly & Sons for your moving needs.”

-Jim N.

“It has taken me too long to give a review. I'm still up to my neck in boxes. But I really wanted to share how fabulous these guys were to work with. So very professional, and also just all-around nice guys. I really felt that my things were in good and capable hands, and nothing was damaged at all. I really appreciated the way they taped the boxes up with the edges of the tape a little loose. Seems an odd thing that I would mention that, but that little extra courtesy made it so much easier to unpack the boxes later. I would highly recommend Priestly to anyone considering a move. Thanks, guys!”

-Lesley N.

“By far the best moving experience (& I’ve had quite a few moves unfortunately) but the guys were super quick, thorough, stacked the boxes nicely in my storage & provided several walk ways which no other company has ever done. I definitely feel like they went above and beyond. I tried to get them again & they were booked out too far but I don’t blame them for being busy they rocked. The movers weren’t creepy either like two other local companies I’ve went through. They were just ideal & went above & beyond”
